Has anybody tried a USB with built in Lightening adapter?

Curious if anybody has tried anything like the link below. Short of getting a Roadie that i've seen mixed reviews on, this seems to be the simplest solution but I'm hesitant as I cant find any that have a reliable name brand behind them.


Also, hoping this isnt against the forum rules to post an amazon link. I'm not in any way affiliated with the seller.

BTW for Amazon links, all you need is the link up to the ‘dp’ and the digit word after it. The rest is tracking and marketing crap. :D

Once I figured that out, sure made posting them a lot simpler!

Far as I can tell these guys just rebrand other vendors hardware, format the drive for you, and double the price for doing it.

Mentioned it on another thread where the SSD they sell is a TON more expensive than the same drive elsewhere and only difference is they formatted it FAT32 for you.

$79.99 from Amazon.

Same thing is $129 (currently "on sale" for $114) from your links website.

Only difference is they take 2 minutes to format the drive before reshipping it to you.

I'm paying for the connivence its offering me. Simple plug n play, gives me the option to hook it up on my iphone, with a 256gb sd card .

micro sd card valued 35$ on amazon.
Flash drive valued maybe 7$ the lowest on amazon.
Plus the feature to hook it up to phone and the app.

maybe the sdd is not a good deal, but i think paying an extra 10$ give or take for all it gives you is great.
